2017 ford mustang for sale seattle washingtonConsumers in China are in for a treat with Ford's updated SYNC 3 technology, which makes writing commands via touch screen a breeze. The innovation, initially introduced in the Mustang, notably increases efficiency for drivers in China - a rapidly growing market for the Blue Oval.

Given that Mandarin characters have their nuances, the process to simplify touch screen input wasn't a walk in the park. But the payoff is worth the effort. The new multi-modal handwriting feature enables users to write characters by hand, immediately recognizing each character stroke in real-time and translating it into a typeface. Automatic association technology was the real MVP behind Ford's technology, making it possible for the system to accurately interpret any number of writing habits and styles.

And when a driver or front-seat passenger is in a rush, the technology doesn't falter. SYNC 3 is able to read Chinese characters even when they're scribbled in angles of up to 15 degrees. Details like this are what take the upgrade from good to great - Ford's engineers truly kept the consumer in mind when crafting the feature. Of course, the technology wouldn't be complete if it was only restricted to written commands. Using enhanced voice recognition technology, SYNC 3 is also able to recognize Mandarin Chinese voice commands.
